Girl's clothes

What is the difference between 6 and 6x? I am supposed to be shopping for a girl and her mom just said she is a size 6. I guess she could have meant a size 6t too. I am so confused :(

  • I'd just get a regular 6. I know when people inquire about sizes for my girls when they're buying clothes, I have to be specific about my oldest daughter's size because she's a skinny little lady. Get a gift receipt so clothing can be exchanged if needed.

  • I'm not positive but I think 6x might be a little "fuller" than just a size 6.

  • I always thought the 6x was for the skinny mini's. When I was little I used to wear a 6x and I was tiny. I'd go with the size 6. Most clothing brands have elastic in the waist now.

  • 6 is regular, 6x is girls version of "husky". My DD wears a 6x because she's solid (but not chunky), and a regular 6 isn't quite roomy enough. There is no 6t - toddler sizes only go up to 5t, which is pretty much the same as 4/5.

  • Thanks anonymous! I know who I am buying for is solid, so I will buy 6x

  • If you go somewhere that sells the pants with the tabs in them then they can adjust them too. GO somewhere like carter, childrens place, osh kosh. Get the 6x. If they are a little big then they can use the tabs to adjust the waist.
